Comments [?]

Function Involved in the biosynthesis of branched-chain polyamines, which support the growth of thermophiles under high-temperature conditions. Catalyzes the sequential condensation of spermidine with the aminopropyl groups of decarboxylated S-adenosylmethionines to produce N(4)-bis(aminopropyl)spermidine via N(4)-aminopropylspermidine.
Catalytic activity RHEA:44132: 2 S-adenosyl 3-(methylsulfanyl)propylamine + spermidine = 2 H(+) + N(4)-bis(aminopropyl)spermidine + 2 S-methyl-5'-thioadenosine
EC 2.5.1.128
Pathway Amine and polyamine biosynthesis.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the branched-chain polyamine synthase family.
